So the real question is, is this a problem are just a situation where they are reprogramming to behave differently so the driver cant hear it?

All you can do is take the information at face value - nothing more or less.

Need to take my truck in for the seatbelt and transmission recalls. Will have to get this fixed as well since it's my only real complaint with the truck.

This is interesting. I didn't expect a PCM re-program to fix the issue, but ok. I already had TSB 18-2274 (transmission shifting issues) applied, so I'm hoping this is an even more updated program they would be using.

Coincidentally, my truck was at the dealer for the deceleration rattle when this TSB came out. They performed it and I just picked the truck up. So far no rattle on the drive back to work. Will post an update if anything changes after driving it more.

I will be so happy if that rattle is gone for good.

Default What about 2017, 2017 ecoboosts?

Has anybody tried it and does it work?

does the 2018 5.0 have the same vct rattle problem as the 2027 and 2018 ecoboosts and can they use the same fix?Have they fixed it in the 2019 models?

I guess I'll wait and see if the dealership contacts me.
Now if only FordPass could work consistently.
